Wolf Interval is a musical entity created in the intersection of Vlad Spears and the ghosts in various machines. There is an emphasis on rhythm and evolving structures, deep bass lines and changing textures. It is a sound born in the technological zeitgeist of new century San Francisco, but draws from and is a sonic citizen of our densely interconnecting world in all its eras and loci.

Wolf Interval’s debut recorded work, an EP titled Night’s Black Agents, is in progress.
A wolf fifth is a dissonant fifth interval created in meantone temperament. It is not like the other fifths, stretching wide and howling like a wolf within the tonal structure. For composers working in meantone, it is avoided in most compositions.
One way to think of the wolf fifth, and my own preference, is that it belongs to another tonal system entirely and has been stranded in meantone after ringing across a dimensional boundary. It’s the most beautiful note, and all the rest are dissonant strangers.
